. so i think it's very simply he will continue to do -- he may even shoot back at us and if he shoots as a ship, kills americans on a ship, are we now not in a war we shouldn't be in? >> neil: any truth to the idea that this is a setup or that other countries in the region -- we have heard from iran that if we do anything there, they're going to start launching strikes on israel. we always hear this with these dustups. but this could end up being figger than we're factoring in here. >> i think it definitely could be bigger, and if you really want to look to when that area became so destabilized, was when egypt was overthrown, when libya was taken over, and those things have not really helped stabilize or improve anything. egypt is the worse case you can ever imagine right now, and if we do this in syria and then iran wants to do that, we have a region that is absolutely totally at war over there. constantly. we shouldn't be part of that. >> neil: when the arab league states are generally supporting a u.s. move against sirarch does that assure you more or do you, and why aren't these g

joins us out of washington. senator, what do you make of this and whether the markets are overreacting to this? >> neil, i'm not sure. i know that markets are very volatile in times of crisis. i know that the likelihood of any egyptian government shutting off the suez canal are remote. i went through the suez canal on the ussforestal when nassar was running egypt but i can't predict the markets. i know this is extreme val tilt throughout the middle east but it's not short-term. it's long-term. the conflict in syria is spreading. obviously the unrest in egypt is serious. but lebanon is destabilized. iraq is unraveling. they have had more bombings and killings in the last month than they had since 2008. the whole region is in a state of unrest, and that's because there is no policy and no strategy there in the middle east. >> neil: what happens if we get involved in sirra, even through missile strikes, and china and russia have already said, bad idea. does this escalate? >> i don't think so. because i don't think russia or china will act anymore than they are. they're retowing resolution

demand so we have enough to last us if there is a disruption, but i'll take at it step further. if we see what happened here in the middle east and the risk premium we put into the oil price, it might have been a lot worse a few years ago if it wasn't for u.s. oil production. the other thing is if you look at the risk premium of the price of oil, we did get some good news out of libya. libya had been part of that premium with the disruption of supply but they started to produce. if it weren't for that oil would be higher today than it was. >> neil: thank you very much. we posit here, often times countries move not so much on human tragedies as the potential for economic ones. selfish interests come forward and that's why you could be hearing a loot more drum beets for doing something. is it me or sounding like deja vu all over again? u.n. weapons inspectors who ain't cutting it, the country they're inspecting hiding it, too late for search for it. clear when it comes to use of chemical weapon on its own people, the regime has done it. so why delay a response? i'm not talking assad tod

his fault. his popularity goes up because people aren't used to people in charge admitting they were wrong and taking responsibility. he did it on civil rights when you had rioting in civil rights demonstrators beaten, and he had not properly prepared and planned for that eventuality. he blamed himself for that. self other instances during the kennedy administration when he did that. i think americans respect that. they admire it when a president does it. and when a president obfuscates it actually intensifies the problems he is dealing with. >> neil: sometimes as the press conference went on and i was listening -- very, very long appearings. i know he is a great lawyer and has legalees responses -- he could benefit from a short, terse jfk remark, and i'm reminded of this, after the bay of pigs fiasco and then-president kennedy talk about it. this is sport sweet. >> there's an old saying that victory has 100 fathers and defeat is an orphan, and i wouldn't be surprised if information is -- in regard to the recent activities. >> do you think that brevity might be helpful here? that the

of the egypt mess the saudis pulled a fast one on us. welcome everybody, i'm neil cavuto. and john mccain said america was losing its pull in the middle east. today the saudis proved it because while we're debating whether to pull aid from egypt here the saudis promising them a blank check, and as we cut aid to cairo, riyadh will make up the difference. the saudis want the muslim brotherhood out of egypt just as much as the government-backed military does and they're spare nothing expense to help make it possible and this isn't just about the saudis. israel also supports the crackdown of the military, eric says when it comes to our waning influence, a very sorry state. we have very few in our neighborhood now. bottom line, eric, our friends, quasi-friends, aren't exactly heeding our friendly advice. >> basically our influence in the middle east in egypt in particular, is out the window. as you said, israel, the saudis, jordan, all telling us, please, back the egyptian military. the muslim brotherhood are the original islamic terrorist group. they spawned al qaeda, created hamas. th

all this is happening. very good to have you, rachel. thanks for joining us. so you're okay if the city ends up footing a good chunk of his legal bills to fight him? >> well, the problem is that this is costing us money every day he remains in office. that's why we launched this recall drive, to get him out of office because he wouldn't resign. if you consider all of the costs involved in having a city paralyze paralyzed, we have departments without heads and can't get new directors with our city in chaos. >> i'm sorry, i see where you're coming from. obviously he could use that as a wedge to keep himself in office. you didn't want that to be an excuse. is that a serious sticking point though? is that what's slowing this down? >> well, you know, i think emotionally it hate to think he did something wrong and we're going to pay for it. but we have to think pragmatically. this recall has been tremendously successful, unbelievably so. but we still have 80,000 signatures to gather. so a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush they say. so we're supporting this resolution to have his
